The Celsius interest rates will vary based on market demand. Therefore, holding cryptocurrency which is in high demand will have higher interest rates than those with less demand.
There is no minimum length of time required to begin earning interest. You are able to earn interest according to a pro-rata calculation determined by the amount of time your funds are held during the calculation period(Friday 05:00:00 AM UTC to Friday 04:59:59 AM UTC); it is accrued weekly, distributed every Monday and it is calculated based on the price snapshot taken each Friday at 11:00 AM UTC.
Note: Interest for deposits made after Friday 04:59:59 AM UTC will only be distributed the following Monday.
All interest earned will be deposited directly into your linked wallet on Celsius, and is easily trackable on your Lending Products page.
Lending the tokens to Celsius will incur a standard Bitfinex withdrawal fee, which will be deducted from your deposited amount.
Withdrawals from Celsius to your Bitfinex wallet are not charged fees.
